Yes, there is, it just isn't a builtin - it lives in the operator module.

Changing the docstring to say "operator.index(self)" would be the
clearest solution here. (Choosing to accept arbitrary index objects as
integer equivalents is up to the object being indexed, just like
interpreting slices is - a dict, for example, will never invoke
__index__ methods).
